2. Turtle Beach Headset - $59.99 - $199.99 - The price varies on the different models for the Turtle Beach Headset, but the same is true of all of them. They greatly increase your immersion in a game. You hear every sound. Every footfall, every crinkle of your enemies clothing as they crawl up behind you, ever gunshot. The sound on these headsets are amazing. Surround sound all the way on all models, the only differences are basically whether you want a corded headset or a wireless one. Myself, I have the corded one. I have used the wireless one however, and have found it to be just as efficient. This is a must have for any gamer.

1. Xbox Live Gold Starter Pack - $69.99 - This is a great starter kit. It comes with a one year subscription to Xbox Live, which is valued at $49.99, a headset for talking on Xbox Live which is normally $19.99, Project Gotham Racing 4, which is $29.99 new, and a Messenger Chatpad which runs for $29.99.
